NIHR's policy is a bit like the Wellcome Trust policy in that there is a preference for Gold open access, but it's not entirely clear where APC funding comes from. See below for help with open access funding for NIHR funded papers.
Publication types: Peer-reviewed research articles (including review articles not commissioned by publishers, final reports or executive summaries), which are supported in whole or in part by NIHR funding.
Repository: Research papers: Author accepted manuscripts should be deposited in PubMed Central (PMC) and Europe PMC within six months of publication. Publishers often deposit on behalf of the author but not always - check with yours and if not, follow these instructions on the Wellcome Trust website for depositing in PubMed.
Embargo period: 6 months.
APC funding: The NIHR open access policy says "the cost of APCs and other appropriate publication charges will be supported either through the original NIHR award, or where applicable an NIHR Open Access Fund. Researchers will need to contact the awarding NIHR Programme Coordinating Centre to review the correct approach".
If you do not have the funds to cover open access fees in your original award and/or your NIHR Programme Coordinating Centre is not responsive, please apply for open access funding from the institutional open access fund. Instructions for applying are available here.
